Salty chocolate

Today´s Swedish word: chokladkaka. Means chocolate bar.

Just a quick note about a new favourite, found at the Stockholm food fair a couple of weeks ago. Salty chocolate! I have tasted some things with the sweet and salty combination before, but this is the best so far. We were walking around, Anne and me, sampling different foods, trying mandolines, shopping Tupperware, nagging coffee machine vendors to give us free espresso. And so we found the chocolate. Five or six different kinds of chocolate - with chili, coffee beans, pink peppercorns, ginger... All very delicious, but this was the one we both really fell for. Dark, dark chocolate with rather large sea salt crystals. The brand is C. Henriet but I am sure there are plenty of other brands too. Just try it, it is so good!

Chocolates and caramels with sea salt are the best! I'll keep my eyes open for that brand if I'm ever in Stockholm!

If (when!) you come to Stockholm I will be more than happy to guide you to salty chocolate and all other goodies for foodies.

What would not be to like about salt and chocolate! And then caramel! Wow! I'd like a bite.

Hmmm... well, I've always loved chocolate-covered peanuts, and part of the attraction is the salt on the peanuts. So - it makes sense! I'll start looking for it. Thanks for the tip!

Tanna - just go looking, it is delicious!
And Nikki - you can find it at Hötorgshallen directly to the left when you come down the stairs...

You should try some Michael Mischer Murray River Salted Chocolate available at outoftheboxgifts.com.

The flavors he has concocted are truly a delicacy.
